Discover Budapest on a sightseeing cruise along the River Danube.
Relax as you pass by some of the city's most notable landmarks while sipping on a complimentary welcome drink (a glass of Prosecco/sparkling wine, a seasonal welcome drink, or a soft drink).
Climb aboard the pleasure boat at the pier of Budapest's Szent István Park and receive your welcome beverage.
Then, cruise down the River Danube, and pass monuments, including the National Parliament, Buda Castle, and the recently restored Várkert Bazár.

Head to the open deck for perfect views of the illuminated Vigadó Concert Hall, or look at the floodlit monuments between the Margaret Bridge and Rákóczi Bridge from the comfort of an air-conditioned deck with panoramic windows.

Experience the city more like a local. While there are no audio or live guides on the boat, it functions as a floating coffee house or pub with its own bar.

Yes it is a simple ride on the Danube without a guide. I expected them to tell something about the city of Budapest, instead Total silence throughout the tour. Enjoyable, but wouldn't do it again and wouldn't recommend it.

You cannot visit Budapest without taking the Danube Cruise. Opt for the evening when Budapest is lit up and the atmosphere is magical.
